Former anchor turned actress, Syamala is quite excited about her upcoming film Oka Laila Kosam. She has played the role of Naga Chaitanya's sister and at a recent event, she had revealed that it was supposed to be her debut film. "I must thank Vijay Kumar Konda, the director of the film, for giving me this opportunity. I still remember the first day when I began shooting, it took me nearly 15-20 takes to get my scene right.
The problem was that I couldn't figure out how to act in films since I was so used to TV shows, where you are expected to be a little animated; however, Vijay Kumar was quite patient with me and he taught me the nuances of acting in films. I owe a lot to him," Syamala said. Recently, she was seen in a minor role in Loukyam.
In the past, Syamala has appeared on shows like Maa Oori Vanta and other TV shows aimed at the family audience.
